        Veduta degl'avanzi delle Torri di Belisario. Dalla porta che guarda l' interno della città,vicino a Porta S. Giovanni

      Roma 1822 - LE ANTICHITA ROMANE La serie delle vedute di Antichità Romane, composta di 101 tavole, viene realizzata con il ricavato della e vendita dei rami della Raccolta di cinquanta principali vedute di antichità tratte dai scavi fatti in Roma in questi ultimi tempi divise in 40 vedute edita nel 1817. Con quest’opera, per il numero delle tavole e per il formato prescelto, di grandi dimensioni, l’incisore vuole affermarsi come figura di primo piano nel mondo artistico romano. In quest’opera Rossini si cimenta in un diretto confronto con il suo predecessore G. B. Piranesi che costituisce un punto di riferimento per un incisore di vedute antiche, per quanto riguarda l’originalità e l’ampiezza della riproduzione. Il Rossini, oltre a sottolineare la sua influenza nella scelta del titolo e di alcune didascalie, usa frequentemente le medesime inquadrature e identici punti di vista del maestro veneziano. Altro elemento riconducibile a Piranesi è l’uso della luce e dei forti contrasti chiaroscurali. In queste tavole raggiunge una certa padronanza del mezzo tecnico che gli permette di cimentarsi in inquadrature più complesse nelle quali si nota un’organizzazione spaziale molto articolata. Nelle tavole è frequente il ricorso al taglio diagonale della veduta, consentendogli una più ampia possibilità di graduare i chiaroscuri in profondità. Tuttavia essendo l’opera composta da molte tavole presenta una certa discontinuità ed è possibile riscontrare in alcune di esse qualche incertezza nella impostazione prospettica ed alcune durezze nel segno. Rimanendo fedele alla tradizione corrente, la scelta dei soggetti operata dal Rossini non introduce nessuna novità; sono infatti rappresentati tutti i più importanti monumenti e luoghi archeologici di Roma. Elementi di novità sono sottolineati dalla registrazione puntuale dei lavori di indagine e di scavo intrapresi in quegli anni che dalla originalità delle inquadrature. Di particolare interesse da un punto di vista documentario sono le ultime quattro incisioni relative alla distruzione della Basilica di San Paolo fuori le mura, in seguito all’incendio del 15 luglio 1823. La volontà di voler animare le vedute, restituendo il monumento al suo contesto storico e la propria inadeguatezza nel campo della figura porta Rossini ad una collaborazione con Bartolomeo Pinelli, incisore romano, interprete e illustratore del costume e della vita popolare; a cui si devono le figure e i gruppi caratteristici che corredano le vedute. Pinelli in alcuni casi, riprende i motivi tratti dalle sue precedenti raccolte di Costumi pittoreschi romani. ROMAN ANTIQUITIES The series of views Antichità Romane, made of 101 plates, was realized with the proceeds of the sale of the plates used for Raccolta di cinquanta principali vedute di antichità tratte dai scavi fatti in Roma in questi ultimi tempi divided in 40 views, published in 1817. This is the work with which the artist wanted to become one of the most important artists in the Roman cultural life; we can state that if we consider the size of the work and the subject he choose. In this work Rossini tested himself with his predecessor, G. B. Piranesi, who was considered as a point of reference when it came to ancient views and originality. Rossini, was deeply influenced by Piranesi, as it can be seen in the title, the legends, the same points of views and framing. Another important element he took from Piranesi is the use of light and the contrast of chiaroscuro. In these plates Rossini reached the higher mastery of the technique, realizing also extremely particular framings and a new and complex organization of the space. In the plates quite common is the diagonal view of the subject, which gave him the possibility to elaborate more the chiaroscuro. However, since the work is made of many plates, it is quite discontinuous and some of the plates present some indecision in the perspective formulation and a little harshness in the mark. Always following the tradition of his time, Ross

        Autograph Letter, Signed, to Judge John Davis, Baltimore, March 20....

      1822. The First Convicted American Slave Trader, A Wife's Plea for Mercy [Slavery]. Smith, Darcas (Mrs. Joseph F.) [Davis, John (1761-1847)]. [Autograph Letter, Signed, to Judge John Davis, Baltimore, March 20, 1822]. Two 9-3/4" x 7-3/4" leaves, content in fine hand to both, second leaf franked and docketed on verso. Light toning, vertical and horizontal fold lines, minor loss at wax seal with no loss to text, few minor chips and tears to second leaf. A rare document, unknown to the American historian who recently published a detailed account of the Smith case. $4,500. * Plaintive plea for mercy addressed to Davis, judge of the United States district court for the district of Massachusetts, by the "disconsolate" wife of 29 year-old Baltimore sea captain Joseph Findley Smith, the first American convicted under the U.S. laws of 1808 and 1818 outlawing the transatlantic slave trade. In April 1820 Smith's schooner, the Plattsburgh, was captured off the West African coast by the U.S. Naval warship Cyane. While the Plattsburgh had no African natives aboard, it had been secretly outfitted as a slaver in Cuba with 50 sets of slave shackles, a set of deck cannons and a portfolio of fictitious papers of "Spanish" ownership. Smith was arrested and taken to Boston, where, in a trial presided over by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story in January 1821, he was found guilty. With Monroe's hope that he would be "made an example of," sentenced to a five-year jail term. The trial was a small media sensation. More than a year later, while Smith begged Monroe for a pardon, the "decent but poor girl" he had married just before sailing for Africa met with the President and Story Both men were sympathetic to this "suffering daughter of America"; Story advised her to have her husband confess to and apologize for his crime and implicate the secret owners of his ship and their Cuban confederates. The impoverished Smith, who had not profited at all from the illegal voyage, complied, and was released from jail on August 30, 1822. Mrs. Smith wrote (in part) to the federal judge who had presided at a related slave-trade trial: "We were not more than three months married, before he took his leave of me, and he has not yet returned. And, oh, heavens had I only known what voyage he was going he should never have left me, no, he should still been with.

        The Persian Moonshee. Abridged by William Carmichael Smyth.

      London: sold by J. M. Richardson and J. Sams, 1822 - Octavo in half-sheets (215 × 130 mm). Late 19th-century green half calf, raised bands to spine with ropework fillets gilt, tan morocco label lettered in gilt to second compartment, marbled sides, edges speckled red, pink endpapers. Two contemporary ownership inscriptions to title-page and one later to front pastedown. Extremities slightly rubbed, spine sunned, contents lightly toned with occasional faint spotting as usual, tan-burn to endpapers from turn-ins, infrequent interlinear annotations in pencil. A very good copy. Folding verb table. Second London edition of Gladwin's Persian grammar, and the first edited by Hindustani scholar Carmichael Smyth; scarce, with just three copies in British and Irish institutional libraries (Oxford, Cambridge and Aberdeen). Part II comprises a series of illustrative "Hikayati Luteef" ("sweet stories"), with Part III, "Phrases and dialogues in Persian and English", excised for this edition. The Moonshee (from the Persian munshi, an honorific given to skilled linguists and clerks) was First published in Calcutta in 1795. "The most frequently published author in late 18th-century Calcutta, Gladwin was responsible for dictionaries and vocabularies, translations of Persian histories, collections of stories and revenue accounts, treatises on medicine and rhetoric, and a Persian version of an abridgement of the biblical history None of this activity is likely to have been lucrative. Gladwin confessed to spending heavily in acquiring manuscripts. Publication costs in India were notoriously high and the market was very restricted. Success depended largely on the willingness of the East India Company to purchase multiple copies" (ODNB).

        Verses.:

      [1822], [Colombo] Wesleyan Mission Press 1822 - Sir Ambrose Hardinge Giffard, a lawyer by training, was appointed Chief Justice of Ceylon in 1819, but devoted his leisure time to literature. These poems were written between 1792 and 1821. Several are about places and events in Ireland, including one on the author's birthplace, Dundrum, near Dublin. Others relate specifically to Ceylon, including "Kandi" and "The Andaman Boy". Although published anonymously, the author is identified in a manuscript note on the front end paper. One of the poems is addressed "To Harriett 28 July 1821" on their wedding anniversary. Giffard married Harriet Pennell on the 23rd of July 1808. This collection was presumably privately published for circulation only to family and friends. The British Library copy, the only other copy we can trace, has a half title like this, but no title page. COPAC records one copy only in the British Library A very good copy bound in contemporary morocco, probably in Colombo. Gilt fillet on boards. Spine neatly repaired. First edition pp.62. With manuscript presentation inscription on front end-paper: "To Mrs William Pennell Junior from her affectionate friend .Giffard, Colombo, July 23 1822".

Trata-se da primeira constituição que esteve em vigor em Portugal, com grande interesse para o estudo da evolução das instituições políticas no nosso país. A segunda edição desta Constituição saiu em 1836. Tem junto a lista dos deputados que a votaram, com indicação dos círculos que representavam, e o Decreto de 26 de Setembro de 1822, que determinava que a divulgação do articulado constitucional seria feita exclusivamente em edições nacionais e oficiais sendo proibidas todas as outras. A constituição resultou dos trabalhos das Cortes Gerais Extraordinárias e Constituintes da nação Portuguesa de 1821-1822, eleitas por um grupo muito restrito de cidadãos - a primeira experiência parlamentar em Portugal, resultado da revolução liberal de 24 de Agosto de 1820 no Porto. As Cortes Constituintes, cuja função principal, como o próprio nome indica, era elaborar uma Constituição, iniciaram as sessões em Janeiro de 1821 e deram os seus trabalhos por encerrados após o juramento solene da Constituição pelo rei D. João VI em Outubro de 1822, juramento que foi recusado pela rainha Carlota Joaquina e por outras figuras como o Cardeal Patriarca de Lisboa, D. Carlos da Cunha e Meneses. A sua vigência foi curta (1822-23 e 1836-38) e acidentada, devido ao extremismo de algumas das suas normas, tendo sido substituída pela Carta Constitucional de 1826. Efectivamente, os deputados constituintes das Cortes de 1822 basearam-se no texto da Constituição Espanhola de Cádiz, de 1812, que por sua vez reproduzia a constituição francesa do período do Terror de 1791 e a posterior de 1795, não tendo em conta a realidade do país, a sensibilidade e cultura das populações nem a situação económica e social depois das Invasões Francesas. In 8.º 18x11 cm. 100 pp. Binding: Contemporary full Marroquin, gilt tools on boards with floral motifs. Gilt tools on spine. A rare national and official first edition. This is the first constitution of Portugal, with high interest for the study of the evolution of the Portuguese political institutions. The second edition of this Constitution was edited in 1836. It includes the list of the members of parliament who voted, together with their constituencies. Also includes the Decree-Law dated September 26, 1822, which established that the information of the constitution?s contents could only be made in national and official editions, all other forms being prohibited. The constitution was the result of the work carried out at the ?Cortes Gerais Extraordinárias e Constituintes? of Portugal between 1821and 1822, elected by a restricted group of citizens ? the first parliamentary experience in Portugal, resulting from the liberal revolution, which started in Oporto on August 24, 1820. The works started in January 1821 and ended in October 1822, when King D. João VI took the oath to the Constitution. The Queen Carlota Joaquina and other important figures at the time, like Lisbon?s Cardinal D. Carlos da Cunha e Meneses, refused to take the oath. The Constitution had a short and bumpy life (1822-23 e 1836-38), due to the extremism of some of its norms, having been replaced in 1826 by the ?Constitutional Charter? In fact, the members of the Courts based the text on the 1812 Cádiz Spanish Constitution, which in turn reproduced the French Constitution in force during the 1791 reign of Terror, not taking into account the reality of Portugal, the sensibility and culture of the Portuguese people, nor the economic and social situation of the country after the French Invasions.

        Manuscript "Preface"

      N.p. [?Baltimore] 1822 - 15, [1] pp. pen and ink on partially lined notebook. Unpublished Manuscript by an Early 19th Century American Poet. Unpublished manuscript "Preface" by the American poet Walter Bicker Walter (1796-1823). Walter published one long poem, Sukey (Boston, 1821, with a second edition that same year) and a volume of Poems (Boston, 1821). His portrait was painted by the noted American artist Sarah Miriam Peale (neice of Charles Willson Peale). Walter was born in Boston, attended Bowdoin and later lived in Baltimore and Charleston, SC, where he died at only 27 years old.Walter wrote this Preface to a proposed commonplace book: "In compiling the present volume, I design to throw together such pieces as may be the result of observation and explerience - extracting from books such remarks as may appear worthy of study." It seems the book was never published, perhaps due to the author's early death.Included are transcripts of Walter's last will and testament (4 Dec 1822) and of a note by his lawyer and friend John Neal, dated 15 May 1823, on hearing of Walter's death. Walter named Neal his literary executor, asking that his friend see his literary remains into print. We find no evidence that he discharged this duty, and certainly the present work, being the Preface to a non-existant work, has never been published. Original blue wrappers. Vertical crease, first and last leaf loose 15, [1] pp. pen and ink on partially lined notebook

        THE HISTORY OF VIRGINIA, FROM ITS FIRST SETTLEMENT TO THE COMMENCEMENT OF THE REVOLUTION

      Petersburg, Va, 1822. Four volumes. Folding table in third volume. Late 19th-century three-quarter morocco and marbled boards; rebacked in calf, spines gilt. Some light wear to extremities. Light scattered foxing and soiling, even toning. Very good. Untrimmed. The scarce second issue of Burk's important history of Virginia, comprised of the original sheets issued with new titlepages, here present with the very rare fourth volume. The latter volume, issued years after the rest of the set, was largely destroyed by fire and only a few copies have survived. The author, well known as a dramatist, was an Irish emigrant and enthusiastic Jeffersonian. After his death in a duel in 1808, the fourth volume was written by Skelton Jones and Louis Girardin, supposedly with the aid of Thomas Jefferson, to whom it is dedicated. That volume covers 1775 to 1781. Jefferson also assisted Burk in the research for the second and third volumes by lending him manuscripts, newspapers, and other materials, and Burk quotes Jefferson's NOTES ON THE STATE OF VIRGINIA... throughout his HISTORY... (see Sowerby for details). "The lengthy appendices are of the highest historical importance" - Eberstadt. This second issue is not noted by Howes or Sabin, and fewer than twenty copies are located in OCLC. SHOEMAKER 8217. HAYNES 2498. PRELIMINARY CHECKLIST FOR PETERSBURG 137. HOWES B971 (1st ed).
